A Thanksgiving Tradition: Alice’s Restaurant at FDL

Greetings from Tulsa where I am visiting my sister and her family for Thanksgiving — and no I’m not from Tulsa I’m from Seattle, but this is how these rumors get started.  

When I got off the plane my 16 year-old nephew Jacob, who has given up video games to make time for his iTunes habit, presented me with a CD full of songs from this really cool band called Led Zeppelin.  He also says he has three albums by Linkin Park.

"What do you need three albums for, they only have one song," I said.

He thought for a moment. 

"Well, it’s a good song."

Later I taught Russ the 5 year-old to say "don’t guilt trip me, man,"  which is how he responded when asked by my sister to put on his pjs.

They’re already delighted I’m here.
